I believe a FaceBook messenger bot would be a great addition to the GetTor service and purpose we begin researching into if a FB bot would be suitable for distributing GetTor and how the community feels about it. I am happy to take questions and gather the answers required as I am the one purposing this.

Bot can be implemented in Python for ease of integrating into GetTor.
There are a few FB policies covering the use of bots and what they can and cannot do, I do not see how the current GetTor bot would fall foul of these policies.
There are limits for api requests which vary depending on which of the two FB api is used for the bot, both of which are very high
A verified (via mobile phone or cc) FB account would be required for making the Bot public along with a review of the bot by FB itself.

I believe this could be a viable and beneficial project and welcome any comments or criticisms.
